Are you taking part in the Fast?
If you have decided to do the 21-Day fast of Daniel, then you decided to abstain from media or any type of content that is not related to the things of God. Perhaps your job requires you to do research, and you need to be on social media. However, you can still be focused on the things of God. Excessive secular information can block you from receiving the Holy Spirit or distract you from your communion with God.
Why is the Holy Spirit important?
The Holy Spirit is the presence of God Himself dwelling within us. Therefore, He is essential for human beings. It is He who promotes the true and complete transformation of life. However, the Holy Spirit does not dwell in all people. But only in those who are willing to give up their will to live the will of the Most High. There must be a renunciation.
What to do during Daniel’s Fasting?
At the beginning of this period, you can get involved with everything that is related to the Kingdom of God. Feeding your thoughts with content that will help you to approach the Most High.
1) Read the Bible and spiritual books
Enjoy that there will be no distractions with social networks or television, for example, and the Bible more throughout these days. Meditate on the messages. Likewise, you can read books that will help you be baptism with the Holy Spirit. As, for example, “In the footsteps of Jesus,” “The Holy Spirit,” “New Birth,” “The Disciple of the Holy Spirit,” among others.
3) Participate in Church meetings
During the Fast of Daniel, attend more services at The Universal Church near you. Every service will dedicate a special time to seek His presence.
4) Listen to Bishop Bira’s segment on the iHope Radio app or visit www.ihoperadio.org
5) Prayer and fasting food throughout the day *Medical clearance if needed.
Prayer is the medium that connects us to God. You do not have to be picking words or making a nice speech. All that the Lord Jesus wants is a sincere conversation. Open to Him and reveal what is within you. Thus, you will create a true relationship with the Author of Life. Similarly, fasting food is an offering that weakens our body, but strengthens our spirit. The Lord Jesus himself said that it is necessary to practice this kind of fasting (Matthew 17:21).
